3. XML Feed:

Providing an XML feed allows us to automate the process of receiving event data.

 

  • We would need a URL to connect to so we could retrieve the XML.

    • The XML feed needs to be in compliance with W3C standards.

    • Any special characters in their data need to be escaped or enclosed in CDATA tags.

    • XML feeds can be validated.

    • The XML feed must remain consistent and we need to be notified if it has to be changed.

  • The XML feed is required to contain the minimum fields below:

    • Title

    • Start Date

    • End Date

    • Address/Location

    • City

    • State

    • Zip

    • Description

  • The XML feed can also contain the following but aren’t required:

    • Phone

EVENT IMPORT

INSTRUCTIONS

 

When your organization has more than 25 events which you would like listed, those events can be automatically imported into the events database, saving you time. All you need to do is submit your file following these simple guidelines:

 

  • Note that because the files are imported electronically, failure to follow the directions could result in your file being rejected by the system and returned to you for corrections, so please follow the directions and sample carefully.
     

1. Organize your data in an excel file (.xls), using the following instructions:

**DO NOT use commas anywhere in the title, date, address, city, state, zip, phone, email or URL fields.
 

2. Upload your file at http://materials.AJRMediaGroup.com. That’s all there is to it! You can submit files as often as you’d like (assuming each subsequent file would have 25 new events)
